Responsible Circle Lens wear and you

I love circle lenses, but I also accept that they can potentially be harmful and dangerous. The point of this blog is to encourage you to use your lenses safely! Because aside from the pain, eye infections can permanently wreck your lashes.

It's my day job to look after people's eyes, so seemed only right to share a little here :)

Caramel Ribbon daily circle lenses quick review

*This is not a sponsored post*

I've been looking for daily circle lenses for a while, simply because I wear them so rarely it is not hygienic to keep reusable lenses stored.

I found these on Rakuten, several sellers stock them. You can search daily lenses by using the term '1日' in the coloured lens section.

The lenses are very flimsy, as they are dailies, so need two finger insertion. Once in, they are very comfortable. They are low coverage so I wouldn't recommend them for covering eye colour.

The wig is from Funnywig (gmarket) and the glasses are Boots Ava :)

Mori ( forest ) girl / 森ガール fashion shopping sites.

This style has been very popular in Japan for a long time, and recently getting a lot of supporters in the West too! In Japan the natural world is highly respected, so there's not so much stigma of being a 'girl of the forest'.

I think the appeal is a soft purity, and a look of intelligence :)

Japanese shops shipping abroad

Favorite One - In my opinion, the best place to go for Mori style. Affordable, natural and lovely.

Onepi-c - lots of unique pieces, very good shop.

Ahaaha - simple, natural.

Japanese shops (require shopping service)

Lowry's Farm - Popular natural style brand.

Olive des Olive - Mid price cute Japanese brand.

Chinese shops (require shopping service)

Dear Li on Taobao - very sweet Chinese shop selling clothes and accessories.

Forest Girl Fans on Taobao - Taobao shop-  I use this shop a lot, review coming soon!

If you need a shopping service for Taobao, I recommend Yoybuy, you can use my affiliate link to support my blog while shopping. Click the yoybuy icon to the right!

Western shops

Muji - Actually a Japanese store but has shops worldwide. Good source of cotton basics and lovely layering pieces.

Cath Kidston - UK brand popular with Japanese Mori girls. Also has US and EU sites.

Accessorize - UK brand selling lots of vintage style and lovely lace accessories. Has branches all over the world, including Harajuku, but I think it's cheaper to buy direct from the UK shop perhaps?

Your local shops

This is probably obvious, but there are many good things to be found at local thrift shops! Mori is all about layering and texture, so while a piece may look very boring by itself, once layered it could work well :)

A small update

I haven't posted here in a long time! I got a new job as an Apprentice Optical Consultant (basically, I work in an Opticians) and so don't have so much free time.

So here's an update XD
